The Peabody Memphis is located amongst tons of downtown restaurants. Across the street is Huey’s, a casual burger joint that’s been voted “Best Burger” by Memphis Magazine every year since 1984. A family-friendly spot, the legendary tavern is known for its burgers and entertainment, which includes blowing toothpicks into the ceiling with your drink straw (as evidenced by the straw-filled ceiling). Another place for kids (or the kid at heart) is Kooky Canuck. With a log cabin atmosphere complete with hunting trophies, it is home of the four-pound burger, which will be free of charge if you can finish it in 60 minutes unaided. Kid- and group-friendly, Kooky Canuck offers tableside s’mores and the Avalanche, an 18-scoop ice cream dessert.
For a regional flavor close to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, Majestic Grille offers European cuisine with a Southern flair. A former silent picture house, the restaurant has been restored with its Beaux Art decor. Local Gastropub is a newcomer to the area, offering delicious high-class options as well. And for a more casual experience, the Flying Fish is a quick-stop place that offers a wide selection of fish, gumbo, po’boys and salads.
